#9 Coastal: Matt Davis to Willow Camp
Location: Starting where Matt Davis Diverges to where Willow Camp intersects
Distance: 1.6 miles
Elevation Gain: 370 ft of climbing (4% grade).
Overall Runs: 1868 by 1140 people
CR: Max King in 12:02 and Keely Henniger in 13:39. Max set the CR in route in the middle of the TNF50 race.
My place: 14, 12:30
Why: To me this is one of the most fun and most scenic stretches of trail in all of Marin, weaving along the hill ~1500ft up from the ocean on single track trail. On a clear day the view to Stinson below and out to Pt Reyes is fantastic. Plus it serves as part of the TNF50 race (in both directions). While Max’s time is impressive, I think that this is one of the segments that could (should?) go down. So who will it be? Dybo? Varner? Roche?
Insider info: In the spring the grass is like a green that you have never seen before. Wildflowers in the summer. Plus look out for that old car on the trail.
